Services & Capabilities
GFC has expertise and equipment to manufacture, formulate, and package products that are either water or hydrocarbon based. We have tanks of varying sizes and constructions with accurate weighing and metering devices to ensure accurate, precise measurements of materials.
Liquid Blending - custom blends of materials to customer specifications. These products can be as diverse as pesticides, liquid fertilizers, or surfactant blends, and can be packaged in virtually any packaging or size. All tanks are on load cells for highly accurate measurement of raw materials - guaranteeing a consistent end use product. GFC has 316 Stainless Steel tanks of varying size, enabling formulation of select exothermic processes.
Emulsifiable Concentrates - ECs are formulations of pesticides where the active ingredient is typically not water soluble. A concentration of an active ingredient is dissolved in an appropriate solvent package, and blended with an emulsifier to make it water-soluble. This is an ideal formulation to use non-water soluble pesticides in a practical manner.
